    I met Max about 30 years ago when we worked at Harrison’s. We became friends, our wives met and they became friends. The four of us enjoyed many dinners at Red Lobster…….we talked, laughed, had some great times and really enjoyed each other’s company. Max and Beverly are now both gone, and now they are enjoying the company of our lord Jesus. Wait for us our friends and one day we will all be together again…….laughing, and enjoying each other’s company. Paul and Helene Bartus

    I’m David A Rivera, Maximino ( Grandpa) is my grandfather. I always cared about my grandfather from long distance. Last time I saw Maximino was at my Mother funeral December 27, 1992. For my understanding what I was told he met my grandmother Felicita Fuentes in Humacao, Puerto Rico and Married my grandmother in 1956. I honestly don’t know what the story is. I now lost both my grandparents. I hope they are at peace. Rest in peace grandpa
